What is CalibrationLoader.exe?

The genuine CalibrationLoader.exe file is a software component of CalibrationLoader by X-Rite, Inc..
"CalibrationLoader.exe" is a highly specialized utility published in the past by LOGO Kommunikations- und Drucktechnik GmbH, a company in Steinfurt, Germany. LOGO was acquired in 1999 by Gretag-Macbeth and thus by X-Rite, Inc., of Grand Rapids, MI, USA, which dissolved LOGO but kept the program. X-Rite, founded in 1958, is a world leader in the precise, consistent specification and control of color in cameras, displays, and physical printing for editing, publishing, and broadcasting. Devices have "ICC profiles" of how they process or produce colors, whose format and content is standardized by the International Color Consortium. Other X-Rite devices and software create these profiles, which LOGO's CalibrationLoader enables a computer to load and use. It installs in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files" along with other software by X-Rite such as "ColorMunki Photo" and is removed if that is uninstalled using the Control Panel.

User Comments

It is a utility that typically works with color calibration software (I use X-Rite's Color Munki) so that your custom color settings are reloaded each time at startup. If you've used a color calibration system (ie, photographers, designers, editors) don't disable this.
